Autumn is officially here. And with shorter days, colder nights and more time spent snuggled up indoors, now’s the perfect time to shift focus and show your home some love.
Ringing the changes at home needn’t mean a major refurb or pricey new colour scheme. Small changes can make a world of difference and don’t have to cost a fortune, whether it’s a quick colour update or just a few cosy finishing touches here and there.
Find all the must-have home essentials and on-trend buys you’ll need to get your home autumn-ready with the latest ANYDAY range from John Lewis, offering all the thoughtfully designed quality products you’d expect, but at super-affordable prices you might not.
Reset the routine
A change of season can mean a change in routine, with young children back to school and older ones off to university. Take the opportunity to re-organise your space this autumn with practical storage buys that will have your home looking shipshape again. The Perch coffee table, £89, gets our vote when it comes to getting your living space better organised.
From boxes, bags and baskets to clothes organisers and hallway storage, the ANYDAY range has all your storage needs covered.
Entertain in style
Evenings in offer the chance to spend time with family and friends. And with entertaining at home back on the menu this year, make sure you have all the stylish tableware you need.
From chic dinner sets to sparkling glassware and serving dishes, ANYDAY’s curated collections offer all the essentials in one place – in store or online – so you can find what you’re looking for more easily.
The Anton extending dining table, £350, seats 6-8 people for a sociable meal. We love it teamed with colourful mix and match dining chairs.
Cosy up your home
Pull out all the stops and make your space as warm and welcoming as it can be this autumn. Focus on the bedroom with plush bedlinen, warm bedding and cosy sleepwear. ANYDAY bedlinen ranges offer all the choice, comfort, quality and easy-care qualities that customers expect, but at every day prices that are a happy surprise.
Pile our fave Swirl metal bed frame, £299, high with cosy bedlinen and colour pop cushions.
Protect your home and the things you love
With Home Insurance from John Lewis, you can create your own flexible policy. Choose from the Gold, Silver or Bronze cover levels and then adapt it to suit your needs through a range of optional add-ons. Less fuss. More protection.
